Community Service – Feed The Homeless Thanksgiving Day Edition
Community Service – Feed The Homeless
iBlack is looking for volunteers to help us prepare and serve Thanksgiving Meals for homeless children, individuals and families. We are working with the the St. Stephen Loaves & Fishes program which has served meals to the hungry and homeless since 1968.
We will start at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, November 25th at the St. Stephen kitchen to cook turkeys and prep meals. The staff will be cooking until about 8 pm, so volunteers can arrive anytime between 12 pm – 8 pm to assist.
No need to bring any supplies but donations are welcome. Everything is provided by the St. Stephen Loaves & Fishes program include aprons and gloves. Professional chefs welcome but NO experience is required – just bring a desire to help others and roll up your sleeves

Social Hashtag(s): #iblackservice
Directions: St. Stephen & the Incarnation Episcopal Church 1525 Newton Street NW Washington, DC 20010
Parking: Please note that the church we are volunteering at does not have a public parking lot. Street parking is very limited due to the number of churches in the area; therefore, plan to arrive well before 11:00 am because finding a parking space can be an issue. We suggest planning to arrive no later than 10:30 am.
The church is also accessible via Metro’s Columbia Heights station on the Green Line (approximately 7 minutes away by foot) and numerous Metrobus routes on 16th & 14th Streets.
